  • Hi Guru

    To adjust the binding so that smartphones won’t try to view PDFs in Word Web App (but other devices will continue to), enter the following command and then press Enter:

    Get-SPWopiBinding -Action "MobileView" -Application "WordPDF" | Remove-SPWopiBinding -Confirm:$false

    To remove the binding altogether so that PDFs open in the default PDF viewer on all devices, use the following:

    Get-SPWOPIBinding –Application "WordPDF" | Remove-SPWOPIBinding -Confirm:$false


    Thanks Mohit

  • Hi, I have the same problem.

    Get-SPWopiBinding -Action "MobileView" -Application "WordPDF" | Remove-SPWopiBinding -Confirm:$false

    doesn't affect, documents from mobile device still openning in Word Web App.

    Get-SPWOPIBinding –Application "WordPDF" | Remove-SPWOPIBinding -Confirm:$false

    works, but I want to disable Office Web App on mobile devices only.
